What is the HCC Philosophy of Advising?
Henderson Community College academic advising empowers students to become responsible
for their own academic success. Faculty advisors are committed to providing accurate
and comprehensive academic advising. Working together, students and advisors develop
one-on-one relationships and share responsibility to assist students to make choices
and define goals; guide students through administrative processes; connect students
to campus services and resources; and encourage the intellectual growth of students.
What is the HCC Advising Syllabus?
HCC has adopted a First Semester Advising Syllabus for use during a student s initial semester in college. The first-semester advising
syllabus is electronically generated during the required New Student Orientation.
The advising syllabus contains a wealth of information for students new to Henderson
Community College, including important advising contacts and a checklist of items
to complete during the student s first semester in college. Each academic advisor
has access to the electronic version of the first-semester syllabus from their office
computer. In Spring 2014 HCC began piloting a Second Tier Advising Syllabus. This syllabus is specific to each program and will be completed by the student and
his or her assigned academic advisor and used as a path for student success. This
syllabus is divided into areas such as academic goals, career goals, advising goals,
and program goals, students need to complete based on the number of credit hours earned
at the college.
